Plans are being finalised for North Street to be resurfaced over a two month period in the autumn.
The entire 400 metre stretch of the road between the Clock Tower and East Street is scheduled to be completely resurfaced by Southern Water who have assumed responsibility after their repairs from 10 years ago have failed to endure.
In a statement Southern Water said: “Co-operating closely with our colleagues at Brighton and Hove City Council, we have developed a clear plan to carry out important road repairs to North Street in Brighton.
“The programme of work is expected to take around two months to complete, a much shorter period than originally envisaged, and is due to get under way this autumn.
“It will see the northern half of the roadway strengthened and resurfaced.
“We are currently finalising the detail of our proposed plan. The revised timetable for the repairs follows a detailed review of the various engineering options available. Although this meant it took a little longer to develop our plan than first thought, it has enabled us to identify the best approach possible.”
